Please read the info below before applying to adopt!

  • Animal ID#: A306359
  • Dog Name: Autumn
  • Dog Sex: Female
  • Approximate Age: 1 year
  • Rock star alert! This gal is fabulous! She is happy, wiggly and all sorts of fun! She loves people and will give you a hug at first meet! She is super affectionate and loves to give kisses! She participates in shelter playgroups with gentle and dainty dogs. We suspect she would be OK with mannerly children, keeping in mind she is a big girl full of lovins! She’s amazing!
  • Her foster says, “She is a very sweet girl (loves cuddling), good on a leash, and very friendly with other dogs. She really wants to play with all the dogs we walk past. She loves to lick our dog, Fenton, in the face. No accidents in the house so far. She sleeps on her bed in her room all night without whining. She seems very trainable. Autumn is a great running partner. Nathan has taken her on runs twice now, and she just runs alongside him.” She’s in a home with cats, but they’re taking their time introducing them to her (as it should be)!

Meeting Dogs at the Shelter

The shelter’s kennels are loud, stressful places for dogs. Some dogs express that stress by exhibiting behavior inside a kennel that they will not show otherwise. Please ask to take the dog you are interested into a play yard and spend some time getting to know him or her in that more relaxed environment. For more information on meeting dogs at the shelter, please read this article.
